I tried something totally different yesterday! I'm not usually a "fur" kind of girl, but I decided that since it's been pretty nippy out, an extra layer of warmth might not be such a bad idea. I ran into this blue and burgundy (totes my winter color of choice right now) stole at a secondhand store and I haven't been able to take it off since! Okay, okay, I may be exaggerating a bit. I have taken it off, but I wear it any chance I get! My favorite way to style it is as a sash å la Miss America. It gives my ensemble an unexpected edge. I might instead drape it around both of my shoulders, but only when it's really cold out. What I like most about this look is the 90s vibe it's casually projecting. The big hoop earrings, velvet choker, oversized shades and fur stole bring me alllll the way back to 1996. Besides keeping me warm and toasty, I love the statement this outfit makes. I feel like a "grown woman," almost as if I can't be touched; like I'm a member of some exclusive club. I love getting away with wearing something my mom used to wear! Channeling equal parts Lil’ Kim and Janet Jackson with my chic fur and bossy braids. I feel so powerful in this outfit. I’m actually very sad the 90s have come and gone, but fashion aficionados like myself can always find a way to dig up old trends when we're feeling nostalgic.
